The Mets never cease to disappoint me. As usual, I can’t book a flight to New York for the postseason...Yet. The following are the top-five reasons why the team has had yet another late-season slide out of first.

5. The Mets are just giving the Philadelphia Phillies a false sense of security.

4. They took Yogi’s advice to heart, “It’s Déjà Vu all over again!”

3. They always have a hard time rebounding when Mr. Met is in a slump.

2. They’re blackmailing season-ticket holders who haven’t paid their ‘09 deposits yet.

1. They don’t want Yankees fans to get a complex. You know how fragile their egos can be.
